CHARLOTTE – The next big job creator in Charlotte might be Robinhood.
Robinhood, which confirmed reports that the company had submitted a draft registration statement on Form S-1 with the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) relating to a proposed initial public offering earlier this week in a company blog post, is also potentially planning an expansion to the Charlotte, according to reports.
The Charlotte Ledger and the Charlotte Business Journal both reported the story.
Robinhood has not yet responded to a request for comment, nor has the North Carolina Department of Commerce.
“The City of Charlotte works with a variety of companies that are looking to expand or relocate their business to Charlotte,” said Cory Burkart, media relations manager for the city of Charlotte. “We can not disclose specifics on those projects until the company decides to publicly announce their decision.”
The financial technology company is rumored to be in the final stages of selecting a new office location to house 300 employees, including possible sites in and around Charlotte, reported The Charlotte Ledger on Twitter and in its daily newsletter.
Real estate sources have indicated to the Charlotte Business Journal that the company has been considering locations in the Queen City, and Charlotte Inno wrote in its daily newsletter this morning that an announcement could be coming next week.
Robinhood currently has 14 job openings listed in the Fort Mill, SC, or Charlotte, NC area on their website, including many positions that could also be hired in other locations, along with positions like learning delivery specialist, options support representative, registered customer experience representative, and site leader for customer experience operations that are only listed in the two cities.
